What is "biodiversity", and what does this term, so often heard, mean? How are the different animal groups connected? What is the food chain and why is it important? Why should we strive to protect and preserve biological diversity? So many questions! Let us help you tackle these subjects. With its diverse ecosystems, Québec is home to many different living organisms. Discover the bonds that link Québec's fauna and meet the animals that reflect the diversity of our wildlife: amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
What is a species, and what makes a species "vulnerable" or "threatened"? What are the possible reasons for these unfortunate distinctions? How can each person, regardless of age, make a difference for the future of these animals? What daily actions can we take to improve their lot? Discover the reasons behind the decline of many animal species. You will have the opportunity to know and see some of the rarer species of Québec.
Who are these animals with whom we share our environment and what is their role in urban ecosystems? What animals come out at night? Why are they near us? Should we be afraid of animal species that live in cities? The purpose of this presentation is to promote coexistence between human beings and Québec's wildlife, while giving you some practical tips to ensure healthy cohabitation!
